It really does add something to the experience. Like you're literally looking into the world of the game.

The cheaping out on the specs however was crappy. Thing is the n3DS virtually doubled all of the important specs and this gave some boost but nothing like how they'd be at 2x internal res. Wonder why the modders didn't take advantage of this to upres titles?

Fear not, the Chinese manufacturers will no doubt knock out a lookalike at some point. Once they get over their Gameboy obsession that is.

Back on topic:

Imagine a Wii 2 Switcheroo dual screen device in which the tablet has a 3D screen and, in an uncharacteristic display of un-Nintendoness, they release the entire catalogue as VC alongside it.

It really is a shame. Nintendoland was such a great example of how the gamepad could be used, but even Nintendo themselves barely bothered to utilize the gamepad for unique multiplayer experiences apart from that one game. We didn't even get to see the dual gamepad functionality get utilized.
Everybody who owned a Wii U probably wanted to see it succeed. I liked the gamepad and still do, but I might be in the minority there. It was a really comfortable controller, but the added bulk didn't serve much purpose when the extra features of it were barely utilized.
